justin bieber hires famed lawyer roy black

After Justin Bieber was arrested this morning, it looks like he wasted no time in hiring a team to help him out!

Bieberoni hired fame lawyer Roy Black who got William Kennedy Smith an acquittal on charges of rape, represented Rush Limbaugh on his misuse of oxycontin charges, repped Kelsey Grammar, Girls Gone Wild creator Joe Francis, and many more!

AND the Biebs has gotten the best lawyer in Miami, at least according to his Real Housewives of Miami wife, Lea Black, he did!

Roy will apparently also be teaming up with Justin's LA based lawyer Howard Weitzman & also Miami criminal defense attorney Howard Srebnick.

Quite a team!

Makes us wonder, however, since BiebsyBear is a client now, will he be required to attend the Black's Annual Gala next year?!?!

That'll be a sight to see!

Katherine Jackson's New Lawyer Plays Peacemaker With MJ Estate

katherine jackson hires lawyer to make peace with mj estate

Do it, Perry!

Earlier this week, there was more drama between Katherine Jackson and the Michael Jackson Estate regarding a document filed with courts slamming the executors of the MJ estate.

Katherine claimed her signature on that document was forged, but Joe Jackson's nephew/Katherine's caregiver Trent Jackson claimed he saw her sign it in person.

In an effort to repair the damage done here, Katherine has hired lawyer Perry Sanders to repair her relationship with the MJ Estate, and get some money she feels she's due.

Perry plans on working with Howard Weitzman, the lawyer for the MJ Estate, in an effort to bring the peace…and get Katherine more $$$.

Here's what Weitzman had to say about Perry:

"If Mr. Sanders is in fact Mrs. Jackson's new lawyer, I will be glad to talk to him."

Should be inneresting to see if Perry can make some magic happen.

Farrah Fawcett's Ex Ryan O'Neal Settles Legal Fight With TV Producer

legal dramz surrounding farrah fawcett special has been settled

For two years, Farrah Fawcett's ex Ryan O'Neal and TV producer Craig Nevius had been involved in some serious legal dramz.

Nevius had filed a lawsuit against O'Neal and others close to Farrah Fawcett over NBC's Farrah's Story documentary, claiming he was "shut out of the project and that the final cut didn't adhere to the actress' wishes."

Farrah Fawcett's estate filed a counter-suit again against Nevius, claiming he "embezzled hundreds of thousands of dollars" from a production firm that he used to co-own with Farrah. They also claimed he gave out info and footage without Fawcett's approval.

NOW, Nevius has decided to settle because he can't afford to keep at it:

"After two years, I can no longer afford to fight Ryan O'Neal, Alana Stewart and Richard Francis over creative control of Farrah's Story and whether or not they had the right to take over the company that Farrah Fawcett and I formed to produce the documentary about her cancer fight and efforts to protect her privacy."

"Contrary to accusations, I have not profited from the film or this litigation in any way whatsoever. In fact, I have experienced profound losses, both professionally and personally."

"The only thing I am walking away with today is the knowledge that I did everything within my power to protect the artistic integrity and personal dignity of Farrah Fawcett who was not only my producing partner but my very dear friend. She showed me the best of humanity in the most trying of circumstances."

"I wish I could say the same of those who surrounded her during the last few months of her life. I will always believe that Ryan and Alana acted as squatters: isolating Farrah from me and others in order to obtain signatures that would ultimately allow them to turn the innovative and informative film we worked on for two years into a network deathwatch."

And here's what O'Neal's lawyer Howard Weitzman had to say about the settlement:

"The frivilous lawsuit filed against Alana Stewart and Ryan O'Neal was dismissed by Mr. Nevius with no payment of any money to him and an agreement that he would return any property that rightfully belonged to Ms. Fawcett or her Estate."

"It was Farrah who decided to replace Mr. Nevius with her best friend of 30 years (Alana Stewart) and her life partner for over 30 years (Ryan O'Neal) despite his wishful thinking to the contrary."

"The statement issued by Mr. Nevius is another sad attempt to justify his actions by using the media to spew outrageous lies about Alana and Ryan."

"Farrah's Story only became a successful Emmy nominated documentary once NBC was able to take over the project from Nevius. Hopefully Mr. Nevius will move on with his life and fade away."

More than anything else, we're just glad to hear that's all over with!

When bringing up Farrah in the future, it would be nice to do so in a more pleasant context, rather than doing so because of ugly legal drama.

What do U think about the outcome of this legal fight???

Chuck Lorre's Lawyer Speaks Up About Charlie's Lawsuit

Filed under: Legal MattersCharlie Sheen

chuck lorre lawyers on charlie lawsuit

Lately, we've been hearing some things that have made Charlie Sheen's lawsuit against Warner Bros and Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre seem increasingly legit, and POSSIBLY even noble.

Chuck Lorre's lawyer Howard Weitzman is NOT viewing the lawsuit as legit at all, though. Here's what he's said about it:

"The allegations in the complaint against Mr. Lorre are as recklessly false and unwarranted as Mr. Sheen's rantings in the media. The accusations are simply imaginary."

"This lawsuit is about a fantasy 'lottery' pay-day for Charlie Sheen. Chuck Lorre's concern has been and continues to be about Mr. Sheen's health."

We're not 100% sure we fully agree with Lorre's lawyer. Just the fact that he was hired in the first place should be an indicator that Charlie's lawsuit is not completely "unwarranted."

Do U think Charlie's lawsuit is ridiculous? Or do U think there's something to it?

Michael Jackson's Estate Lawyer Wants To Stop Katherine Jackson Book From Being Published!

mj-wenn__opt11__opt11__opt14.jpg

We knew there was something shady about all of this shiz!

Katherine Jackson has teamed with bussinessman Howard Mann to publish coffee table book Never Can Say Goodbye, which will feature personal information and family photos of Michael, and is set to be released on the anniversary of his death.

Well, apparently we weren't alone when we thought this was all in pretty poor taste - the Jackson estate lawyer Howard Weitzman is NOT happy about it either, and thinks that Mann "may be using his relationship with Mrs. Jackson to infringe upon Michael Jackson's copyrights … to the detriment of, among others, Michael's 3 kids."

He also is ready to take "whatever action is necessary to prevent him from unlawfully profiting."

Mann apparently also is behind making record deals for 273 unreleased tracks from the King of Pop, all of which he acquired in a fire sale after Joe Jackson didn't pay for the storage space!

This guy sounds awful!

We hope someone will intervene and keep Katherine away from this slime ball before he exploits her family more!

Thoughts??

Michael Jackson Musical Hit A Legal Snag!

mj-wenn__opt11__opt11__opt13.jpg

Everything having to do with this guy has become a court case!

Michael Jackson signed a contract a year before his death with Nederlander Presentations for a musical featuring tracks from his albums Thriller and Off the Wall, but now his estate is attempting to nix it from happening!

However, Nederlander is filing a creditor's claim and hoping a probate judge will force the executors of the estate to honor the aforementioned contract!

Lawyer Howard Weitzman says:

"I've seen their creditor's claim. I don't agree with their request."

What do U think?? Should a Michael Jackson musical come to Broadway??
